Ritual-Abuse/Mind-Control Special Interest Group (RA/MC SIG)

Ritual-Abuse/Mind-Control Special Interest Group


The Ritual Abuse and Mind Control Special Interest Group (RA/MC SIG) of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation (ISSTD) was approved by ISSTD’s Executive Council in 2008. The Mission of the RA/MC SIG is to further dialogue, knowledge, research, and training on the etiology, evaluation, and effective treatment of trauma and dissociation in clients reporting histories of ritual abuse or mind control. The RA/MC SIG provides a listserv for its membership that has as its goal to create a comfortable and confidential setting to dialogue on these matters. This is an active listserv with a large international membership. The officers of the RA/MC SIG are elected annually by its membership. Membership in the RA/MC SIG is free to all ISSTD members as an ISSTD membership benefit.
